The restaurant has earned international recognition, called one of the best Chinese restaurant’s in the Country by Gourmet magazine, and being named in the “Top 100 Restaurant in the Bay Area” by the San Francisco Chronicle for nine consecutive years. The brothers strive to bring modern Chinese cuisine to America, frequently returning to China to seek out new ingredients and cooking techniques.

He has competed in numerous culinary competitions, winning top honors and 33 gold medals in various culinary events; and he was the first chef to set a record for pulling 16,000 noodles in two minutes.

Throughout the years Chef Wu has traveled extensively working and studying with top chefs including National Treasure Chef, Gao Bing Yi, one of the most respected and accomplished culinary masters of Modern China. He is proud to have cooked for the Prime Minister of Japan and has prepared the state banquet for the King of Thailand, the Prime Minister, and many prominent officials. In 1996 Chef Wu moved to Toronto to work at the famous Peking Men Restaurant before moving to Vancouver to open Lee Shen Dek.
